Ballad Of Davy Crockett Recorded by Burl Ives Written by Tom Blackburn and George Burns
G C G Born on a mountain top in Tennessee A7 D7 Greenest state in the Land of the Free G C Raised in the woods so he knew every tree D7 G He killed himself a bear when he was only three
C G Davy Davy Crockett D7 G King of the wild frontier
C G Off through the woods he went marching along A7 D7 Making up yarns and a singing a song G C Itching for fighting always righting a wrong D7 G He was rangy as a bear and twice as strong
C G Fought single-handed through the Indian War A7 D7 Till the tribes went west and peace was in store G C The rest of his life he took the stand D7 G That justice was due the redskin man
C G He went off to Congress and served a spell A7 D7 Fixing up the government and laws as well G C Took over Washington so we heard tell D7 G And patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
C G He heard of Houston and Austin and so A7 D7 To the Texas plains he just had to go G C Where the land was free and there was room to grow D7 G And he fought and died at the Alamo
C G Davy's land is the biggest Davy's land is best A7 D7 From grassy plains to the mountain crest G C He's ahead of us all meeting the test D7 G Following his legend into the West
